Kathryn Immonen, Sara Pichelli to take over Runaways [Update]

by  in Comic News Comment

To make its latest creative-team announcement, Marvel Comics turned to television — specifically, G4’s Attack of the Show.

In yesterday’s episode, host Blair Butler announced that writer Kathryn Immonen (Patsy Walker: Helcat) and artist Sara Pichelli (NYX) will pick up Runaways after Terry Moore and Humberto Ramos end their run in April. David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-Man) will provide the covers.

Butler showed glimpses of art from the premiere issue and teased, “Marvel promises that one Runaway will die in the new story arc, and one might live again.”

Presumably the new team debuts with Issue 11, whose creative lineup and content is listed as “classified” in the solicitations for June.

You can watch Butler’s “Fresh Ink” segment after the break.

Update: Lafuente posts links on Twitter to his covers for issues 11 and 12.
